 SUMMER TERM

 

 

Welcome back. With another great term of creative and exciting activities ahead let’s hope we now have some warm and settled weather as our Summer term begins; this will enable us to get outside even more to use our school environment to support the children’s learning this term, especially for our final topic in June and July.

 

 Last term we welcomed Mrs Clarke to Year One. She is completing a final teaching placement in affiliation with Edgehill University. Mrs Clarke will be sharing the teaching in Year One and we have many exciting ideas and plans in place for this term’s curriculum. Mrs Clarke is very enthusiastic and comes with lots of experience and I know the children will really enjoy her involvement.

 

Spring Term 2018

 

It was a busy and exciting end to last term. Can I thank you for all your hard work with our Christmas activities and requests.

We said a goodbye to Mrs Mendonca in a special assembly at the end of term. She has worked over many years in Year One and we are so grateful for all her hard work, care and support.

We have had a great first week back!

Miss Harvey returns to continue her teaching practise with us until February. She has got to know the children very quickly and is planning some great activities for them.

We are delighted to welcome Mrs Currie into Year One, whom many of you know from her work as a lunchtime supervisor. The children know her well and will benefit greatly from her support every morning as a teaching assistant in our class.

Our themes for this term are ‘Explorers’ and ‘Growth and Green Fingers’ with a strong emphasis on Geography, History and Science.

Both these units have a strong element of outdoor work so we shall be hoping for some good weather. Our work as part of the Forest School’s Experience is particularly exciting for us. I know the children will gain a lot from this in so both curricular and their own personal development.

Thank you for your continued reading support. Our new online ‘resource ‘Bug Club’ is for you to use alongside our current reading programme if you wish. Do continue to sign the ‘100 Club’ boxes when you use this too. I am really grateful for the excitement and pride that the children have shown to be in our special reading club!

We are always available to speak to you about any immediate concerns so please feel free to do so.      

 

Autumn Term 2017

We have had a great start to this term and the children have been very enthusiastic about the launch of our new topic ‘Robots’. This has a largely Scientific theme but is built into our other curriculum areas too.

This week we are opening our Robot workshop. 

We are also beginning to change our own reading books, very exciting! This is an important part of the reading process and a responsible thing to be able to do.
